Temple of the Masks, or simply Temple II stands at 38m and is accessed by a wooden staircase on the right side of the structure. In honour of his wife, the temple was built by the Tikal King Jasaw Chan K'awiil I circa 8th century AD whose legacy is commemorated across the Gran Plaza with Temple I(47m), also known as the Temple of the Great Jaguar.
